Control Theory with Applications to Naval Hydrodynamics
by R. Timman
Number of pages: 84
The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints. The method of dynamic programming is also used to solve the unconstrained control problem. Stochastic systems are introduced, and the Kalman-Bucy filter is derived.

Using the tools of optimal control, robust control and adaptive control, the authors develop the theory of high performance control. Topics include performance enhancement, stabilizing controllers, offline controller design, and dynamical systems.

Several streams of nonlinear control theory are directed towards a constructive solution of the feedback stabilization problem. Analytic, geometric and asymptotic concepts are assembled as design tools for a wide variety of nonlinear phenomena.

This book brings the state-of-art research results on advanced control from both the theoretical and practical perspectives. The fundamental and advanced research results and technical evolution of control theory are of particular interest.

The book is concerned with the effects of nonlinearity in feedback control systems and techniques which can be used to design feedback loops containing nonlinear elements. The material is of an introductory nature but hopefully gives an overview.
